Apologies for this long overdue review. A couple of weeks ago Dan cooked an outstanding dinner for 9 family members. The process of choosing a menu for this number taking in to account everyone’s likes/dislikes couldn’t have been made any easier by Dan. He came back to me with a spectacular sounding menu including canapés, an amuse bouche, starter, gin fizz sorbet, main, dessert and petit four together with homemade bread. It was course after course of deliciousness. We were all so impressed with Dans food and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being cooked for in the comfort of our home surroundings. The other thing to mention is that Dan is a lovely person and totally considerate of being in your home. The added bonus is that he probably left the kitchen cleaner than he found it. When he had left we all joked about whether it had actually happened, you wouldn’t have known he’d been apart from the happy memory of amazing food! I cannot recommend Dan highly enough and will definitely be asking him to cook for us in the future. Thank you Dan. Michaela - York More...

We booked Dan to cater our Silver Wedding Afternoon Tea for 30 people. The service and food were excellent with a range of savoury and sweet options that everyone loved. We were impressed by the way Dan also catered for those family members with special dietary needs. Thank you for making our special day a real success. More...

Absolutely fantastic afternoon tea to celebrate my brother and sister in laws silver wedding anniversary, I have had lots of afternoon teas but Dan's was by far the best, brilliant selection of savoury and sweet treats, all freshly made and taste delicious, would highly recommend for anyone wanting catering for a special occasion.

Amazing amazing amazing amazing! Attended a dinner party and the food was out of this world! From the starter to the desert I didn’t leave a single bit on my plate - I couldn’t it was so delicious! My particular highlight was the salt aged fillet steak - oh my goodness it was melt in the mouth deliciousness. I would’ve quite happily had 4 or 5 of the gin and tonic palet cleansers!!! To finish the amazing dinner party we were served passion fruit and white chocolate soufflé - mouth watering amazingness!! Thank you so much for a delicious meal from the very first mouthful to the last! More...

Dan cooked an incredible (fully vegan!) meal for my sister’s hen party. He took care of everything, the food was absolutely delicious and the kitchen was cleaner when he left that when he started. Totally recommend!

We had Dan cook for our works early Christmas party last night & what an excellent night it was! We opted for a buffet style with little portions of the menu (we are all so indecisive to pick one meal each! ) we have genuinely never tasted food as beautiful, it was well presented & he worked with such professionalism answering all questions asked and kindly declining the numerous wedding proposals! Would definitely hire again! Thanks for making our night Dan! :D More...

Dan came to cook for a party of 21 for our joint stag & hen weekend, and I couldn't be happier that we booked him! The whole process was excellent: he was quick to get back to us and made it all very easy to organise. We sent him a short brief, describing some of our likes and dislikes, and he came straight back with the perfect menu! The food absolutely lived up to expectations - it was all delicious, and the feedback we have had from our guests has been great. The evening went very smoothly, Dan and his assistant were both professional and helpful, and the kitchen was left spotlessly clean. I would recommend Dan without hesitation. Thank you for helping to make our weekend so enjoyable! More...

I wanted to thank you for the meal you prepared last Sunday for the family and I for Vienna’s Christening. The quality and standard of food you created for us far surpassed our expectations and every course was absolutely delicious too. The whole family commented on what a fantastic job you had done and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was a topic for conversation throughout the rest of the day and we most certainly hope to have the chance to book your services for another family gathering in the near future. More...

Q&A

This is a tough one to answer as I love to cook most dishes, however 'At the Dinner Party's' most popular dish has been the Apple Tart Tatin, salted caramel, calvados crème fraiche for dessert.
Many of my lamb dishes have also become very popular.

I listen carefully to the clients brief, what they like or dislike, the size of the event, the budget they'd like to stick to. I then take all of this information and write a bespoke menu for the client which reflects their brief and the seasonal aspect of the food. So far I have nailed the menus on first attempt about 95% of the time, the rest of the time I have just had to tweak a couple of bits.

Setting up 'At the Dinner Party' has given me the opportunity to carry on doing what I love which is cooking beautiful food, but I can now do this without all of the politics that is associated with working in a hotel or restaurant.
I am loving getting out all over Yorkshire and seeing so many stunning homes and holiday cottages, and meeting some lovely people and being a part of their event.

After more than 16 years working as a full time chef in hotels and restaurants, I decided I wanted to do something for myself, I wanted to be able to make the decisions I wanted, and not be dictated to by owners and managers.
Since setting up 'At the Dinner Party' I haven't looked back and have never been happier.

If your looking for a high end personal experience with a personal chef then look no further.
I pride myself on quality, if I believe I cant cater an event to my exacting standards then I don't take the job. I get fantastic feedback from all clients, I have grown a loyal following of clients now, with lots of repeat custom and customer recommendations, which I feel speaks for itself.
